Oscar Party Ideas With Moneyball Theme

How to Throw a Moneyball-Themed Oscar Party

It may not be baseball season quite yet, but you can get that feeling if you throw an Oscar viewing party and let best picture nominee Moneyball be your inspiration. The film might even make for a better theme than Midnight in Paris or The Artist, depending on your crowd. Here's how to score a home run at your Oscar gathering (and don't forget to fill out a ballot for a chance to win an iPad.)

  • How to decorate: Bring out baseballs, bats, gloves, and any other sports memorabilia you may have. String up streamers in green and yellow (the Oakland A's colors), and nod to the movie's financial theme by decorating with fake dollar bills. If you really want to tie in the film, get a life-size Brad Pitt cutout (which wouldn't be a bad thing to have around, anyway).
  • How to dress: Wear the shirt of your baseball team of choice, but to really mirror the film, rock Oakland A's gear, or at least their colors.
  • What to serve: Traditional ballpark fare like hot dogs, beer, cotton candy, and peanuts in the shell, and if you're feeling ambitious, here are some dressed-up ideas for baseball snack favorites. Bake cookies or cake pops and frost them to look like baseballs.
